    An apparent White House bid to clean up President Joe Biden's latest gaffe with a stealthy transcript tweak is drawing widespread meme mockery.

    Biden on Friday railed about the Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade, reading from a teleprompter and calling the decision an "exercise in raw power." But when he quoted the majority decision, he appeared to read instructions inserted by his speechwriter.

    "Women are not without electoral or political power, it is noteworthy that the percentage of women who register to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so, end of quote, repeat the line," Biden thundered.

    That drew plenty of virtual laughter Friday afternoon, but the Biden blooper had vanished by the time the official transcript of the speech came out.

    "Let me repeat the line," Biden said, or at least meant to say, according to the transcript.

    After a wave of Twitter ridicule, White House Assistant Press Secretary Emelie Simons insisted Biden didn't actually read the teleprompter instructions.

    "No. He said, 'let me repeat that line,'" Simons said in a tweet.

    Judge for yourself:

    "They are spitting in your face & telling you it's rain," tweeted popular YouTube lawyer Viva Frei, who recently moved from Canada to Florida. "@White House [is] modifying the transcript to pretend POTUS' obvious gaffe was intended to be part of the speech. It says though they think the video doesn't exist. Or people will choose to believe the lie."

    "Emelie Simons, sure seems like you're the one who doctored the official transcript to cover up for Biden's cognitive issues," tweeted John Cardillo.

    "Desperate to save face, the White House just took gaslighting to another level by lying in an official transcript about Biden's gaffe captured on camera," added Twitter user Mia Cathell.

    It's not the first time Biden has struggled with the teleprompter or revealed his dependence on careful instructions from his handlers.

    Last month, a sharp-eyed reporter noticed the back of Biden's notecard before a discussion with union and private sector leaders on wind energy showed step-by-step instructions, including the words "YOU take YOUR seat."

    In April, a handler dressed as the Easter bunny steered Biden away from delivering off-the-cuff remarks about Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan yet to be revealed to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
